On August 2 and August 9, 2011, our guests are the candidates in the upcoming election for County Executive of Erie County, NY:
the current County Executive Chris Collins (R),
and the current County Comptroller Mark Poloncarz (D).
On these dates, we combine Conversations About Gambling with the preceding program, The Public Good, hosted by Sam Magavern (Tuesday 1:00-1:30pm), so each candidate has a full hour (1:00-2:00pm) to present his views on issues of poverty, racism, education, cultural funding, and casino gambling in Erie County.
On August 9, 2011, Mark Poloncarz responds to questions from the hosts and the listening audience.
